Default HELP... Craft for 5th-8th Grades

HELP.
I need a fun craft or activity for my Jr. Church crowd. Mostly girls but there are one or two boys who occasionally join us.. It does not need to be overtly Christian (not crosses or bible story related). Just a good craft that makes something that might be useful and/or fun to make. I'm a writer so I can pretty much relate any craft to some Bible story (grin). We've already made bookmarks, cards and small gift boxes/baskets out of paper. We baked cookies, baked cupcakes & baked bread for seniors, homeless and shut-ins. We tie-dyed t-shirts, built bird houses, and made journal books for the kids themselves. I need something "different". It can't cost a fortune - since the money comes out of my pocket - but I'm more than willing to put out some cash if the project is special enough. It needs to be "done" in 45 minutes. It needs to pretty cool - geared toward junior high kids who are world-wise (we live just outside of NYC). It can even be something we can give away to other kids who are not as blessed as we are - so long as the craft is stury.

What about friendship bracelets? How about something out of shrinky dink that could be hung on a backpack?

Oh... I like the zipper pull idea for a back-pack. I could even have them make homemade beads out of my paper scraps. They would have to dry and finish the project the next week... but I think I could live with that. Thanks!
